    Once the phone has been unlocked, you will see the home screen, and at the bottom, you will see a few icons.
    It is one of these icons that we will need in order to access the Applications Folder. To do that, we need the icon in the middle that is a grid made up of white dots. Press down on this icon.

    We now need to find the "Twitter" application.
    You can see that there is the "Twitter" icon, which is a blue background with a white bird on top. Underneath, it says the word "Twitter". The "Twitter" icon could be in any position in the "Apps" folder. Once it has been found, press down on it to enter the application.

    In this video tutorial, we want to show you how to turn on and off the option to show your precise location in a tweet.
    First, we need to create a new tweet by pressing down on the icon in the bottom left hand corner of the screen. It is a gray quill pen in a gray box. This will allow us to create a new tweet.

    We need to add the location.

    The suggestions are quite broad.
    For example, it says "Georgia", which is the country, and it's a very big country. Therefore, we can show our precise location, such as the city or district. This could depend on our exact location. A more well known location, such as a big city, might have more map data than less known rural locations.

    If we want to share our precise location, we have the option at the bottom of the screen.
    If the icon at the far right corner is gray, this means that the feature is currently deactivated.

    If we press down on the icon, it will turn blue and activate the precise location feature.
    Now, when we share our location, it is going to try to show our precise location. As we've mentioned, this could be the neighborhood, barrier or the city, and not just the country.

    However, if we don't want to show our precise location and want a more general location, we can turn this option off by pressing down on the same icon.
    This will turn the icon gray and deactivate the precise location feature.
